    One thought on “Creating a Life: Finding Your Individual Path”

    1. I'm sure you've had at some point the situation where someone gives you instruction or advice that made things clearer than you even thought possible. Maybe it was directions to an address or how to poach an egg and they said it to you in a concise and unassuming way. It's like suddenly there is this well adjusted and responsible un-intrusive adult in the room and because of this you know you are safe and your needs will be met. It's the closest thing I've experienced to the words I heard in my [...]

    2. I love James Hollis. Seriously, I LOVE James Hollis. He has so much to say that conveys the "depth" in depth psychology. I can't imagine what it would be like to go through life and never think about what he writes about. (Of course, most people do go through life that way. Which basically explains why the world is the way it is.)

    3. This is a good book with lots of practical advice for "the second half of life". Works well as a follow-up to The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife.

    4. This is one of those books I often revisit. Hollis is a bit cranky, but I find his crankiness endearing and a bit comforting, actually.

    5. Great book to help us understand and find our unique "individuality" and move towards a happy future by feeling comfortable within ourselves. There is some great insightful wisdom in this book.
